From regression estimates to document tables: output formatting using estout

By Ben Jann


Post-estimation processing and formatting of regression estimates for input into document tables are tasks that many of us have to do. However, processing results by hand can be laborious, and is vulnerable to error. There are therefore many benefits to automation of these tasks while at the same time retaining user flexibility in terms of output format. The -estout- package meets these needs. -estout- assembles a table of coefficients, "significance stars", summary statistics, standard errors, t/z-statistics, p-values, confidence intervals, and other statistics calculated for up to twenty models previously fitted and stored by -estimates store-. It then writes the table to the Stata log and/or to a text file. The estimates are formatted optionally in several styles: html, LaTeX, or tab-delimited (for input into MS Excel or Word). There are a large number of options regarding which output is formatted and how. This talk will take users through a range of examples, from relatively basic simple applications to complex ones.
